No need for discussion or breaking down other people's beliefs here... I'm just curious to see what people really believe... This will hopefully cover a broad enough spectrum that it will get a lot of responses from the different areas discussed in the Tinderbox...

1. Do you believe in Jesus Christ dying for the sins of future generations, and that through his death, we are all able to be "saved" from future horrors by accepting him as our saviour?

2. What are your views on the Second Amendment?

3. Do you support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion?

4. Do you believe in programs to advance and help your fellow citizens in a time of need, while at the same time enforcing rules on these programs to ensure that they not be abused?

5. Going back to question one... If you answered "no" to this question, do you believe in an intelligent deity that has what is best for mankind already mapped out (fate) and that we really have no choices in life because our destiny is already determined?

6. Do you believe in extraterrestrial life, be it intelligent, or unintelligent?

7. In your opinion, was the US government involved, by direct action or lack thereof, in things such as 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination?

8. Do you think taxes are a good thing, and do you agree that the money generated from taxes go to benefit the average American citizen?

9. What happens when we die?

10. Should homosexuals have the same rights as heterosexuals, and should they be allowed to get married?

11. Can you think of any more areas I have not covered here that should be asked?


I'll post my answers in a couple of days...

1. No
2. Its not well written
3. No
4. Situationally dependent
5. No
6. Yes
7. In 9-11, no way in hell. In the Kennedy assassination, probably not but I am less certain of that answer.
8. Taxes are a necessary evil. In some ways they benefit us, but not consistently.
9. Thats it.
10. All people should have the same basic human rights. Gays have a right to create their own religions, and if that religion allows marriage, then they can get married. But I am against government recognition of marriage, period.
11. Did baseball make a mistake by creating the designated hitter? No doubt about it.

1. Do you believe in Jesus Christ dying for the sins of future generations, and that through his death, we are all able to be "saved" from future horrors by accepting him as our saviour?

Yes

2. What are your views on the Second Amendment?

Fine with it.

3. Do you support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion?

Yes. That decision is none of my business, but I shouldn't be forced to fund it by Obama.

4. Do you believe in programs to advance and help your fellow citizens in a time of need, while at the same time enforcing rules on these programs to ensure that they not be abused?

No. Private charities FTW.

5. Going back to question one... If you answered "no" to this question, do you believe in an intelligent deity that has what is best for mankind already mapped out (fate) and that we really have no choices in life because our destiny is already determined?

6. Do you believe in extraterrestrial life, be it intelligent, or unintelligent?

Yes

7. In your opinion, was the US government involved, by direct action or lack thereof, in things such as 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination?

No


8. Do you think taxes are a good thing, and do you agree that the money generated from taxes go to benefit the average American citizen?

Taxes should be used to keep the infrastructure of America up and running, so they are needed.

9. What happens when we die?

I'm going to Heaven.

10. Should homosexuals have the same rights as heterosexuals, and should they be allowed to get married?

Yes. None of my damn business and why deny them benefits of marrriage. If they have the balls (no pun intended) to commit to somebody for life, they should be able to experience the same benefits of us who committed to one women.

11. Can you think of any more areas I have not covered here that should be asked?

Why in the hell did you vote for Barry Obama?


Here.

No need for discussion or breaking down other people's beliefs here... I'm just curious to see what people really believe... This will hopefully cover a broad enough spectrum that it will get a lot of responses from the different areas discussed in the Tinderbox...

1. Do you believe in Jesus Christ dying for the sins of future generations, and that through his death, we are all able to be "saved" from future horrors by accepting him as our saviour? I don't really have a firm opinion on this. Ask me tomorrow and I might.

2. What are your views on the Second Amendment? The right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed, and I support this right to a more extreme extent than most. Personally I don't own any firearms.

3. Do you support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion? Past 7 weeks of pregnancy, no. I think it is wrong. I also acknowledge that it would be impossible to enforce such a ban on abortions without seriously infringing on personal rights, so I oppose oppressive laws restricting abortions.

4. Do you believe in programs to advance and help your fellow citizens in a time of need, while at the same time enforcing rules on these programs to ensure that they not be abused? I believe that charity is a personal endeavor, and any time the government steps into the charity business, corruption will be an inherent problem that will always be there. So, no. Maybe I have too much faith in the individual, but I believe if the government got out of the way, people would band together and help each other more.

5. Going back to question one... If you answered "no" to this question, do you believe in an intelligent deity that has what is best for mankind already mapped out (fate) and that we really have no choices in life because our destiny is already determined? Possibly. I think it is foolish to eliminate this possibility.

6. Do you believe in extraterrestrial life, be it intelligent, or unintelligent? The odds of intelligent life existing in the same timeframe as humans are extremely small. But the odds of there being no unintelligent life in the universe are equally small. In the vast history of the universe, I could potentially see the possibility of extinct intelligent civilization. (Like star wars... that was a documentary, right?) In short, I will be surprised if we ever find anything more than unintelligent life in the universe.

7. In your opinion, was the US government involved, by direct action or lack thereof, in things such as 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination? 9/11 - no. Kennedy, perhaps. Other global events, youbetcha.

8. Do you think taxes are a good thing, and do you agree that the money generated from taxes go to benefit the average American citizen? The closer the taxes are to home, the more they benefit the people. The further taxes get from your community, the more diluted it becomes and the more greedy hands it passes through. My ideal government would be a federation of local governments who collect taxes.

9. What happens when we die? Decomposition begins very quickly without the presence of some kind of preservation, I hear.

10. Should homosexuals have the same rights as heterosexuals, and should they be allowed to get married? Yes, but churches and ministers should have the right to abstain from performing ceremonies if they wish.

11. Can you think of any more areas I have not covered here that should be asked?

In the triangular power struggle of society between corporate, government, and individual interest, which two, when emphasized together, provide the most prosperity?

What situations should collectivism be valued over individualism and vice versa?

In what situations are controlled markets really controlled in any sense of the word?

1. Do you believe in Jesus Christ dying for the sins of future generations, and that through his death, we are all able to be "saved" from future horrors by accepting him as our saviour?

No. I believe there may have been a man named Jesus who perhaps died on a cross, but I don't think it absolved me or anyone else of their sins simply by "accepting him as our savior."

2. What are your views on the Second Amendment?

I'm all for it.

3. Do you support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion?

Yes.

4. Do you believe in programs to advance and help your fellow citizens in a time of need, while at the same time enforcing rules on these programs to ensure that they not be abused?

Yes.

5. Going back to question one... If you answered "no" to this question, do you believe in an intelligent deity that has what is best for mankind already mapped out (fate) and that we really have no choices in life because our destiny is already determined?

No.

6. Do you believe in extraterrestrial life, be it intelligent, or unintelligent?

I believe it is possible they exist.

7. In your opinion, was the US government involved, by direct action or lack thereof, in things such as 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination?

I don't think so.

8. Do you think taxes are a good thing, and do you agree that the money generated from taxes go to benefit the average American citizen?

I think that taxes are a necessary practice for any country/government to survive

9. What happens when we die?

Our body shuts down and slowly decomposes until it is returned to the Earth to feed the plants

10. Should homosexuals have the same rights as heterosexuals, and should they be allowed to get married?

Why shouldn't they?

11. Can you think of any more areas I have not covered here that should be asked?

No.

3. Do you support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion?

No. If there is an intelligent deity, i do not see any evidence that he has anything to do with us down here

Considering the vast size of the universe I think it's very possible there is life on other planets, we are here. If not now then at some point in the universes existence.

No need for discussion or breaking down other people's beliefs here... I'm just curious to see what people really believe... This will hopefully cover a broad enough spectrum that it will get a lot of responses from the different areas discussed in the Tinderbox...

1. Do you believe in Jesus Christ dying for the sins of future generations, and that through his death, we are all able to be "saved" from future horrors by accepting him as our saviour?
Answer: No
Why?: Because that doesn't seem compatible with my understanding of human nature, physics, thermodynamics or logic.

2. What are your views on the Second Amendment?
Answer: Should be strengthened to maintain the spirit of its intent.
Why: The 2nd amendment was made to foster civic resistance to remnant British colonialism. People forget that the demographics of the time didn't necessarily favor the rebels. An armed citizenry could literally stop an army's movements for years. Today, it has become more of a inconvenience as 'our' forces are the ones that are being kept in balance - but only a minor inconvenience as it is nothing more than an illusory balance. At least the balance of difficult progress is maintained somewhat, though the US military would still be able to move at relative ease - albeit more slowly.


3. Do you support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion?
Answer: In it's current state, no.
Why: The status quo does not extend an "equal protection and opportunity" to men either in the negative or affirmative. Something (don't know what) must be done about this. Realms of choice for parenthood exist for women from abortion, adoption, guaranteed custody and tax subsidy and the list goes on ad nauseum - men are not protected at all and I've seen it drive a few of them literally insane with the inequity.

4. Do you believe in programs to advance and help your fellow citizens in a time of need, while at the same time enforcing rules on these programs to ensure that they not be abused?
Answer: No
Why: At the end of the day, though seeing starving children in telethons tugs the heart strings just as much as it does everyone else's, I cannot convince myself that it is permissible to take and redistribute wealth based upon social inequity which has it's root causes stemming from a myriad of sources, not least of which is the fact that the person with the wealth originally tended to choose to earn it. If those wealthy people choose to be philanthropists, I applaud and endorse them - but I cannot philosophically say it is sound to forcefully take his wealth from him based on my morality... no matter how much I think he ought to do it of his own volition.

5. Going back to question one... If you answered "no" to this question, do you believe in an intelligent deity that has what is best for mankind already mapped out (fate) and that we really have no choices in life because our destiny is already determined?
Answer: I don't think about it really. The answer is then "no"
Why: See answer to question 1.

6. Do you believe in extraterrestrial life, be it intelligent, or unintelligent?
Answer: It is plausible, I do not 'believe' in it though.
Why: I would not be surprised nor would I be unsurprised. We have too little a sample set to divine the probabilities of life arising even if we could understand the exact mechanism by which it did - however, the universe's scale is dramatic and beyond comprehension. That scale, both in time and space - make it plausible that life has developed elsewhere of all variety.


7. In your opinion, was the US government involved, by direct action or lack thereof, in things such as 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination?
Answer: Question is vague, I'll go with "yes"
Why: "lack thereof" is pretty encompassing. Pearl harbor intel, for instance, has been verified to have existed. As was the knowledge of Osama and the threats - the lack of action is not arguable. What is argued is the motive. Was it incompetence or purposeful? I believe incompetence, I do not have nearly the superhuman fantasy picture of government agents that most have. They are stiffs working 9-5 and chit chatting about what they hope happens next in Lost or Heroes, not mythical computers by which nothing can hope to escape the attention of. Hell, they're not even particularly good about knowing what will happen next in Lost by the watercooler... If they were, they'd be getting paid a lot more.

8. Do you think taxes are a good thing, and do you agree that the money generated from taxes go to benefit the average American citizen?
Answer: Yes. Yes, but by "benefit" I mean significantly less than most.
Why: You nailed it in the question, it must benefit the 'average' American citizen... by which it must mean not a mere majority (51%)... but damn near every citizen. I.E. - Defense, Public Infrastructure, Trade. Otherwise, the collective taxes of the nation should not be used, rather those regions or specialized groups should be pooling their money to support those causes (which would be simpler to do if they weren't giving it all to massive federal budgets).

9. What happens when we die?
Answer: Nothing. No more.
Why: See answer to number 1 and 5.

10. Should homosexuals have the same rights as heterosexuals, and should they be allowed to get married?
Answer: Yes. No.
Why: They deserve the same protection and advantages for their union that straights have. The error came, as the often do, from a failure of foresight a long time ago when the government came to recognize what was, at its fundamental level, a religious practice. This should be rectified to remove the one qualm I have. Churches should not be forced, by government mandate, to recognize something by their religion's original nomenclature which they believe is wrong as valid. Also, the government should no longer recognize any "marriage" in terms of filing status or tax exemptions, rather - they should notice the 'permanent union' as applied for via court house of all couples. Also, penalty and back taxes should be applied to those that falter on their contract with the government. If people don't like that, then it should not be recognized at all by government and various faiths may administer whatever governmentally valueless label they choose to whomever they choose.

11. Can you think of any more areas I have not covered here that should be asked?
Answer: No
Why: That "should" word.

I'll post my answers in a couple of days...

1. Do you believe in Jesus Christ dying for the sins of future generations, and that through his death, we are all able to be "saved" from future horrors by accepting him as our saviour? YES

2. What are your views on the Second Amendment? Still legal

3. Do you support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion? As long as it's hers and not from outside forces and in extreme circumstances like rape or incest.
4. Do you believe in programs to advance and help your fellow citizens in a time of need, while at the same time enforcing rules on these programs to ensure that they not be abused? That's a few assumptions. It assumes the programs will help without stating what the programs are. Enforcing the rules I guess you mean like the govt? Who enforces the govt? And don't say the citizens because they don't.
5. Going back to question one... If you answered "no" to this question, do you believe in an intelligent deity that has what is best for mankind already mapped out (fate) and that we really have no choices in life because our destiny is already determined?

6. Do you believe in extraterrestrial life, be it intelligent, or unintelligent? Very possible

7. In your opinion, was the US government involved, by direct action or lack thereof, in things such as 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination? Lack thereof seems more plausible as things could fall thru the cracks or red tape etc getting in the way. Seems to help #4.
8. Do you think taxes are a good thing, and do you agree that the money generated from taxes go to benefit the average American citizen? Necessary evil. Not always. Term limits would fall into the category of better enforcement of congress.
9. What happens when we die? Only one way to find out. Don't be wrong.

10. Should homosexuals have the same rights as heterosexuals, and should they be allowed to get married? Sure. I'm for equal rights.

11. Can you think of any more areas I have not covered here that should be asked? Confirmation bias or cognitive dissonance as it relates to the aforementioned questions. :D

1. Do you believe in Jesus Christ dying for the sins of future generations, and that through his death, we are all able to be "saved" from future horrors by accepting him as our saviour?

I think Jesus was the answer to a lot of the problems facing the clash of church vs. state (mainly the jews and the romans) during his time. He was no different than any rebel against society, but gained worldwide noteriety unlike any other (and is now the most famous rebel in the history of the world).

Is he the son of God? I certainly don't think so, but God is arbitrary to me (I am agnostic). I think he was a great story and a cabalist that his growing followers could get behind in order to establish a rebellion.

He very well could have been a very smart guy that saw the chance to unite people toward a greater good, and so he used the muse that he was the son of God to further his mission. Whether or not his closest followers believed him or simply understood his purpose, it worked and Christianity is a booming.

2. What are your views on the Second Amendment?

No strong views on it really. Gun control is a bad concept however because it would just take the guns away from the people that purchase them legally (In other words it won't curb crime). There are a lot of idiots that buy guns though.

3. Do you support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion?

Again, no strong views on this. Women that choose to put themselves in situations where they can become pregnant (knowingly) and still do it knowing she can just abort is sickening. However, I think pregnancy is just a form of biology...so abortions are just another way of halting science (In other words, I don't think pregnancy is some divine miracle or the work of something bigger than us).

4. Do you believe in programs to advance and help your fellow citizens in a time of need, while at the same time enforcing rules on these programs to ensure that they not be abused?

To a degree, but I think a lot of those programs are corrupt and mishandled.

5. Going back to question one... If you answered "no" to this question, do you believe in an intelligent deity that has what is best for mankind already mapped out (fate) and that we really have no choices in life becaTo use our destiny is already determined?

I believe God is simply the driving force in the fabric of our time. God is just the idea of bridged gaps and an entity in things that are simply unexplainable by man. God isn't a physical figure, but a self-working intelligence that we will never be able to grasp.

6. Do you believe in extraterrestrial life, be it intelligent, or unintelligent?

Sure, too big a universe for us to be at the center of it.

7. In your opinion, was the US government involved, by direct action or lack thereof, in things such as 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination?

I think, to an extent, there was definitely inside knowledge on both accounts. How deep the involvement goes I have no clue on.

8. Do you think taxes are a good thing, and do you agree that the money generated from taxes go to benefit the average American citizen?

So much tax money is wasted on utterly worthless s**t. The tax system has a place in our government but we are in so deep and the system has become so corrupt that taxes in general are demonized every day.

9. What happens when we die?

Not a clue in the world...and I hope I don't find out anytime soon!

10. Should homosexuals have the same rights as heterosexuals, and should they be allowed to get married?

Same rights? Sure. But I also think marriage should be completely separate from the state. Leave marriage to religion and give all the benefits to civil unions.

11. Can you think of any more areas I have not covered here that should be asked?

Maybe later :D

1. Do you believe in Jesus Christ dying for the sins of future generations, and that through his death, we are all able to be "saved" from future horrors by accepting him as our saviour?

I don't know. Not being facetious but the idea of the creator is so complex and mind boggling that I usually go with i have no idea. It seems strange that I can be saved that way but the Universe is a damn strange place.

2. What are your views on the Second Amendment?

I think it had to do with the need for a well maintained militia which is not needed anymore. However I am registered libertarian which suggests you should be able to do whatever you want as long as it doesn't bother me.

3. Do you support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion?

Yes

4. Do you believe in programs to advance and help your fellow citizens in a time of need, while at the same time enforcing rules on these programs to ensure that they not be abused?

Sure

5. Going back to question one... If you answered "no" to this question, do you believe in an intelligent deity that has what is best for mankind already mapped out (fate) and that we really have no choices in life because our destiny is already determined?

No i believe in free will

6. Do you believe in extraterrestrial life, be it intelligent, or unintelligent?

Probably. Only because however big my brain can imagine the Universe being it is infinitely bigger. must be something out there

7. In your opinion, was the US government involved, by direct action or lack thereof, in things such as 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination?

It's possible

8. Do you think taxes are a good thing, and do you agree that the money generated from taxes go to benefit the average American citizen?

Sometimes


9. What happens when we die?

To complex for me to know. I suspect it goes black like before i was born. But it would be a pleasant surprise if there were an afterlife or reincarnation.


10. Should homosexuals have the same rights as heterosexuals, and should they be allowed to get married?

Sure go for it

1. Do you believe in Jesus Christ dying for the sins of future generations, and that through his death, we are all able to be "saved" from future horrors by accepting him as our saviour?
Somewhat
2. What are your views on the Second Amendment?
I am glad we have the second ammendment
3. Do you support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion?
Yes
4. Do you believe in programs to advance and help your fellow citizens in a time of need, while at the same time enforcing rules on these programs to ensure that they not be abused?
Somewhat, if we could truly find a way for them to not be abused. But the federal gov't doesn't seem to be able to do so.
5. Going back to question one... If you answered "no" to this question, do you believe in an intelligent deity that has what is best for mankind already mapped out (fate) and that we really have no choices in life because our destiny is already determined?
I beleive in an intelligent deity who created the world (not from an Adam and Eve standpoint), but not sure if he is a personal God or not. I do pray and am thankful for our creator.

6. Do you believe in extraterrestrial life, be it intelligent, or unintelligent?
Yes, in some form or another. The universe is too big for us to be the only form of life out there.
7. In your opinion, was the US government involved, by direct action or lack thereof, in things such as 9/11 and the Kennedy assassination?
In lack of action, yes.
8. Do you think taxes are a good thing, and do you agree that the money generated from taxes go to benefit the average American citizen?
Taxes are necessary for the gov't to run, but we pay too much in taxes now.
9. What happens when we die?
I'll tell you when I die.
10. Should homosexuals have the same rights as heterosexuals, and should they be allowed to get married?
Same rights yes, but churches should not be forced to perform these marriages. Churches that choose to do so fine; but other churches should not be forced to marry anyone that they do not want to. That applies to both homosexual and heterosexual relationships.
11. Can you think of any more areas I have not covered here that should be asked?
Views on the war in Afghanistan/Iraq? Views on US bases placed strategically around the world (Germany, Japan, Korea...)
